The Joy of a Boy

When I found out I was pregnant I knew I was having a girl. I looked at all things girly. For some reason it never dawned on me that I would have a boy. My sister had a boy six months before I found out I was pregnant and we had all been thrilled because that was what we all wanted. 

My mom had two girls and we knew my Dad would be over the top to have a grandson. A grandson it was and oh how joyous it was! Six months later I found out I was expecting and we all thought "okay we had the grandson bring on the bows and tutus". God had other plans.

This wild child of mine is all boy. He is rough and tough with a touch of mean and lots of lovin. How did he learn wrestling moves I have no idea. I think it was born in him. Just like how he knows the sound a car makes and no one ever taught him. I think there are certain things boys just know. 

I love this picture of Jack. I caught him mid laugh. Each time I said "choo choo" he would crack up so I grabbed my phone. Oh that laughter, so infectious. 

He is a handful, believe me, such a handful. He is also such a joy. He can make me belly laugh like no other. 


  1. I haven't read a blog post in FOREVER! Any blog post. But I had to take a quick peek in on your to see how things were going. :) I love this post! Isn't it funny how boys will just be boys? It's like there's a handbook they get handed at conception that teaches them all this fun adorable. And your son is precious, btw. Hope all is getting better, day by day. :)

  2. Girls can be a handful too...we call C Animal from the Muppets because she is out of control!
